“Curious Minds”: Matthew Jarron will talk about D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson

On Friday 28th October Matthew Jarron, Curator of Dundee University Museum, will give the second “Curious Minds” talk of the season. Matthew will talk about one of the most remarkable Scottish academics of all time, D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson. Thomson was Professor of Natural History at Dundee College and St Andrews University. Amongst many other accomplishments he is perhaps best remembered for his work “On Growth and Form” in which he described the mathematical basis for the growth of many features seen in plants and animals.
